Daytrotter Session - Vita and the Woolf

Daytrotter recently posted their session with Vita and the Woolf. For the in-studio performance, the band sandwiched fan favorites, "Brett" and "Mary," between two previously unreleased tracks, the 8-bit-tinged "Super Ranger" and synth-rumbler "Sundrop". You can listen to and download the session HERE (w/membership), which was recorded on September 25, 2015 at Futreappletree in Rock Island, IL. Vita and the Woolf will be performing next in Philly on Thursday, July 28 at the Spruce Street Harbor Free Concert Series, along with Hemming.

Active Bird Comminity drops new video for 'Pick Me Apart' + plays Bowery Electric on 7/23

Fresh out the time machine, Active Bird Community play indie rock music that could've been beamed straight out of the late 90's. Clearly inspired by the tense, guitar-driven acts of yore like Interpol or Built to Spill, the quartet's tunes are like love letters to a simpler time for indie-rock, when everyone knew what the hell it actually was. Their latest video for "Pick Me Apart" perfectly captures this ethos: Tom D'Augustino's slacking vocals sing about the mess that is life, while "fun" events and happy people whir around him. The only time he shows positive emotions, then, is when he's playing music with his friends under a blanket fort. It's a video about lost youth, highs and lows, alligned thematically with college rock, but featuring a more mature sound. Active Bird Community also released a single back in April, and you can check them out at The Bowery Electric on July 23rd. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Track: "The Order Of Things" - Field Mouse

Episodic, the new album from Field Mouse, will be released via Topshelf Records on August 5. Its latest single, “ The Order Of Things,” which premiered yesterday at The Le Sigh, muses over existential questions; however, you don't get weighed down with the bright percussive propulsion providing a energetic lift.  Field Mouse will be holding their record release show on August 4 at Boot & Saddle with Swanning and Missing Earth.

Modern Diet plays Shea Stadium on 07.26

New York band, Modern Diet, certainly stays to true to their name, offering a modern mesh of indie pop and soul with some jazz undertones. Upbeat single, “Echo Parade” (from this year's debut LP MD So Far) comes full circle as it begins calmly, presumably describing the uncertainty of love in the summertime, and builds up as the singer gets to the point, saying, “let’s slip and slide and sleep together again.”  The song takes a turn with instrumental focus, questioning the same cycle and repetition of love, and finishes in the calm way it started. Be sure to catch the band on at Shea Stadium on July 26th with Roofer’s Union, Special Guest and Del Water Gap. - Madeleine Grossman

Guy Fox Releases New EP - Paper Roads

Paper Roads, the fourth release by Bay Area locals Guy Fox, streets on July 15th. The EP follows the group’s debut full-length release Night Owl (2015) and maintains core elements of the band’s signature sound while taking on a new trajectory. While the band spent the better part of two years in and out of the recording studio crafting Night Owl—a heavily atmospheric recording—Paper Roads embraces, and more closely mirrors, the energetic live set for which the group has become known.

“Paper roads are roads that were approved by a town at some point in history, but have never been built--they just exist on paper,” explains songwriter Nate Witherbee. “We liked the idea as it hints of aspirations, ideas or dreams that haven’t become reality.”

This melancholy-tinged sentiment contrasts with the upbeat grooves and horn arrangements that are at the core of any Guy Fox record. “Let’s Move to Canada”, the EP’s penultimate track, perhaps best encapsulates the group’s ability to combine carefree, tongue-in-cheek lyrics that hint at deeper questions, while opening track “What Ya Say” demonstrates the group’s newfound ability to utilize space and broken down instrumentation.

Recorded at the new Tiny Telephone Oakland studio with long-time producer James Riotto (John Vanderslice, Merrill Garbus, Geographer), Paper Roads offers the most raw and genuine work produced by the group thus far.
